Make my Bosch dishwasher NOT beep at the end of cycle!

Hey EF Gang,
My Bosch dishwasher makes 5 LOUD distinct beeps when it has finished running the cycle and dishes are done. Any idea how to shut that off? I tried to find the model number of the machine so I could google and then google translate the instruction manual but because of the way the machine is installed I can't access the info.
I took a picture of the control panel if that is of any help. ( If you'd like to tell me what all of the different buttons mean that would be cool too. )

Re: Make my Bosch dishwasher NOT beep at the end of cycle!

Have a look on the top of the door on the metal 'shelf' somewhere to the left of the on button and there should be an engraved plaque with all the details if the machine. You might have to look very carefully as it's not easy to see.

The controls in your photo are almost identical to the ones on my Siemens dishwasher so if you can't find the info you need post again and I'll dig out our instruction manual.
Ours beeps too but it doesn't actually bother me as we usually run it at night and we can't hear it upstairs in the bedrooms.

Temps and times are different for all cycles

Google has a good explanation for all .

This does really piss me off as well. I hate dishwashers! If anyone knows how to stop a Miele dishwasher stop beeping please enlighten me.

Just type your question in the search box - that's how the above eHow link was found - but Anthony was quicker.

Re: Make my Bosch dishwasher NOT beep at the end of cycle!

Usually the model number is printed on an aluminium coloured sticky label on the side of the door, or on the door frame.

Then Google for "Manual / handbook for Model number 123-yzxw "

Re: Make my Bosch dishwasher NOT beep at the end of cycle!

i thought the beeps were a "friendly" reminder to open the door after a wash. I was brainwashed to believe that its not good to keep the door shut.

Actually, it's just to tell you that it's finished.

Apparently you should either leave the door shut until the contents is cooler and dry, or open it fully to let the moist, hot water vapour disperse quickly.

What you shouldn't do is open it slightly when a wash as finished as all the moist air will end up ruining your kitchen cabinets, causing them to swell and warp (also true if your work tops are laminated chipboard).

This is exactly what we were total by the guy who installed our kitchen.

I usually go for option 1 because a) I run the dishwasher at night and b) it's not very pleasant getting a face ful of hot water vapour if you open the door immediately.

The same goes for boiling a kettle. Don't put the kettle under overhead units or the steam will also ruin the cabinets over time as it condenses on the underside.

Re: Make my Bosch dishwasher NOT beep at the end of cycle!

It's like Swiss/old/mental people leavings the oven door open when baking is finished, to let the heat out.
Unless their heating is not working, it's not necessary - the heat will dissipate slowly over time, anyway, with the door closed - and in the case of a dishwasher, it also aids the drying process.

I also run mine overnight, and there's never a problem, when I open the door the next morning.

Some products are just over engineered - no requirement that I can think of for a bleep at the end.

Tumblers are different - mine bleeps, and then continues with periodic turns for a while, until switched off, so the clothes don't become more creased.

Why can't they design dishwashers like some washing machines that self-release the door when done.

Doesn't letting the heat out increase the room temperature and thus trigger the thermostat and thus you save on heating for a bit.

What I don't get is why people with electric heating spend money on replacing perfectly good (non-broken) incandescent bulbs by energy saving ones in the middle of the winter. As if the polar bears care that you're shifting that heating power from your lights to the heaters.

Unless you have two or three loads to run in succession and want to know when to load the next.

Re: Make my Bosch dishwasher NOT beep at the end of cycle!

Most of the beepers would be small about 15 mm square, and positioned inside the door. If you are brave you could try disconnecting the beeper.

Open the door so it is flat, and hold it down with string and weights. This is because when you lift the steel cover (wall of the door) the door will be lighter and will swing upwards towards the closed position. Make sure the main 240 volt supply is disconnected, look under the sink and remove the plug, or trip the fuse box! Check the machine is indeed switched off!

Then carefully remove all the screws around the outside of the steel cover and any holding the soap dish and liquid dispenser.

Lift the cover carefully, don't strain any wires in the loom, and look for the beeper. If you can see it, disconnect one side of the wires to the beeper, and tape the loose wire near the beeper with some insulation tape. Replace the steel cover.

If you just want a quieter beeper, try wrapping it up in electrical insulation tape.

Another dumb post from SBrinz.

Please ignore his advice and just use the instruction manual to work out which button combination to press to cancel the buzzer option.

Our washing machine did that at our last apartment. It was a real fascist washing machine. We found moving to a new apartment helped.

You mean it was positioned on the far right of the washroom?

If the dishwasher didn't beep you would actually hear the swearwords its saying. If you have young children in the house I would defintely keep the beep.
